Coaxial cables are typically rounded, making passage through windows, screens, and door areas slightly difficult. Fortunately, flat coaxial cables are made to solve this very problem. These cables are only rounded on one end, and are available as shorter "jumper" style units, designed to span the window or door. Inserting these flat coaxial cables into the chain can make a difference in an install that may be rendered impossible otherwise.
